How It Works:
When you give Noah's Rest temporary custody of your pets, they will be provided with safe, temporary shelter and veterinary care for up to 60 days. Our program successfully reunites individuals with their pets after they have left a situation of family violence or abuse.
If you feel you and your pets are in danger of domestic violence, we are here to help.
All pet care services are free and confidential.
Step 1 Start by calling the 24-Hour Crisis Line at a domestic abuse shelter near you or your local police authority.
(Lake County, IL) A Safe Place at 847-249-4450 or 800-600-SAFE
(Lake County, IL) Lake County State's Attorney's Office at 847-377-3000

(Kenosha County, WI) Women and Children's Horizons at 262-652-9900 or 800-853-3503
Step 2 Get out of your home with your pets. Try to bring pet food, veterinarian medical records, any pet medications with instructions and items that will make them feel comfortable.
You will be provided with a safe meeting location where the pet custody exchange will occur.
